Reminder: changed database offer from 2017

Oct 12, 2016

As announced at the start of the year, we will be concentrating on medical facts from 2017. However, you can continue to search for the databases then no longer available with us in other hosts.

In this way, we are releasing resources necessary for information tasks with a statutory substantiation. We can further develop our information systems and databases on drugs, medical devices, classifications, health care data and health technology assessment in future as well.

You can still find all the databases no longer contained in our programme in 2017 with other hosts. For example, ZB MED has already been offering MEDLINE free of charge via the Livivo portal for some time. For more information, we have produced a brief overview of alternative hosts (PDF, 144 kb) for you. You can obtain details about possibilities of access and price models from the providers themselves.

The following databases will no longer be available from 2017:

  • BIOSIS Previews
  • Cochrane-Databases (CCTR, CDSR, CDAR, INAHTA, NHSEED)
  • CAB Abstracts
  • Global Health
  • Ethmed
  • GMS and GMS Meetings
  • PsycInfo
  • Psyndex
  • SciSearch
Still with DIMDI

Alongside the aforementioned information systems and databases, our original databases and registers as in the PharmNet.Bund portal will remain. This also applies to our register with object identifiers as well as specific databases for limited groups of users (in particular authorities).
